  • 2 pounds boneless chicken thighs , cut in half
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 lager
  • 2 cups panko bread crumbs (whole wheat, oddly enough, work wonderful)
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flake


  • Set oven/air fryer to 400 degrees.
  • In shallow dish, combine salt, pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, and corn starch. In a separate dish, combine beaten eggs and beer. In a third dish, yup, combine the panko and cornmeal. Roll chicken into seasoning, then into egg mixture, then into panko/cornmeal. Air fry for 12 minutes or bake for 20 minutes, until 165 deg F.
  • As chicken cooks, combine honey, hot sauce, pepper flake, and a pinch of salt in a small pot. Heat until it bubbles and set aside.
  • Once chicken is cooked, quickly toss in the hot honey and serve. Extra napkins and a cold beer recommended.
